How To Prioritize Your Mental Health In University
I asked on one of my posts last week what type of posts you guys wanted to read and quite a few said about mental health and some said about university so I decided to write a kind of two in one post! University can be stressful and overwhelming for a lot of people and if you have mental health problems it can be that way even more so. Here are some on how to prioritize your mental health in university:
Take care of your body
Make sure you’re sleeping on time, eating right and getting some exercise. It may seem like time consuming or a waste of time but these are actually really important to your mental health. Not eating well and a lack of sleep and exercise can really mess up your brain chemicals and make your mental health problems worse.
Plan everything out
Make sure to plan everything out, for example, write all the due dates for your paper on a planner so that you know when something is due and aren’t caught off guard. This is a great way to decrease your stress levels and to be proactive and do your work in advance so that you’re not overwhelmed at the last minute.
Meditation and relaxation
Taking some time to meditate and relax for at least a few minutes a day really helps to calm you down and decrease your stress levels. Remember to take some time to just do nothing and breathe a little- you deserve it!
If you feel overwhelmed or as though things aren’t going well or as planned please seek help from professionals. Most campuses have counsellors and for some reason if you are unable to physically go to a professional there are online sites that offer online counselling with professional therapists.
I hope these tips on how to prioritize your mental health in university were helpful. Do you follow any of them? Would you like to share some tips of your own? Let me know in the comments section below because I would love to hear from you! Or simply stop by and say hi!
